Affiliate Marketing

Have you ever visited a blog or a personal website and noticed the owner recommending a particular product or gadget? If you have clicked on the link, more than likely it takes you to another site where you have an opportunity to purchase said product.

What you may not realize is that if you purchase, more than likely, the owner of the site has an affiliate account with that company. Meaning, every time someone buys the product, the site owner makes a small commission. And when I say small, it is typically a % based on the sale item.

Affiliate marketing has caught on like wildfire and tons of companies have taken notice and now offer affiliate programs. If you visit some of your favorite stores online, look for their affiliate link. And if you have a blog or website, spend some time investigating various affiliate programs. If you use a product and really like it, why not feature it on your site and make money if someone buys it?

Note sure what to feature, try out these affiliates!
